Focus T25 Workout Review Day 1 Cardio

This is my This is my Focus T25 Workout Review Day 1 Cardio: here.. Today I started my very first day of Focus T25.  I want to start a blog journal of my Focus T25 Workout Review so that I can track my results and share with others who are looking to get in shape with the T25 workout program.  Today is the first workout called “Cardio” but before I dive into the workout routine let me share with you what inspired me to do this.

Yesterday, I was at the Mall shopping with my wife and trying on some new clothes.  (Apparently, my clothes are out-dated and I need to get with the times).  But, as I was trying on clothes and looking in the mirror I didn’t like what I saw.  I hardly recognized myself and wondered what happened to me?  I really let myself go… I’m sure you can relate if you’re married with children.  I think something happens when you get married and have kids that you focus less attention on yourself and more on your family.  This is not necessarily a bad thing for the family, but not taking care of your own health is also not a good thing.  So needless to say… I made a commitment to myself that I would get back into shape starting with the T25 program.

I decided to start with the T25 program because it only requires a commitment of 25 minutes a day.  My usual excuse to myself is that “I don’t have enough time to workout.”  But, with less than 30 minutes I really don’t have an excuse.  It’s also a 2 month program (unless I want to take on the T25 Gamma challenge).  I figure if I can commit myself to an 8 week program that it could change my life.

Focus T25 Workout Review Day 1 Cardio

As the T25 program outlined this would be only a 25 minute workout program each day.  But, don’t let that fool you as Shaun T really kicks your butt in 25 minutes.  You have the same amount of workout in less time.

The workout starts with a light warm-up, but did not include any stretching time.  (I learned that I need to warm-up and stretch before I start the program).  Shaun T’s warm-up consists of some light jumping jacks, some high-knees, and jogging in place drills.

It was very easy to start as I didn’t need any equipment.  Just some comfortable shoes, a water bottle and a towel to wipe off any sweat.  I clicked “Play” and tried to keep up.

I realized very quickly that these exercises were going to be high impact exercises.  I don’t have the best knees so I decided to follow “Tanya’s” modified movements.

This is one thing I like about the T25 workout program is the ability to perform modified moves.  I haven’t worked out in years and know that if I tried to go 100% the first day I wouldn’t last very long with the program.

Surprisingly, even though I did the modification moves and took it easy in comparison to Shaun T and his workout team, my body could definitely feel the difference.  My legs, thighs, and core started to tighten-up and become sore.

Shaun T also doesn’t give you any breaks during the T25 workout programs, thus if you get tired or need to rest then you just have to click the pause button.  In other workout programs they allow you 30 second breaks in between sets, however I know that Beachbody wanted to compact the workouts as much as possible to give you the best workout in the shortest time.

The T25 Cardio program consisted with a lot of lunge time moves, mini-jumping, and running in place drills.  I liked the fact that the routine didn’t require a lot of floor space as my exercise room isn’t very large.

I still need to read the T25 Nutrition Guide to learn what I can and cannot eat.  I think that’s the hardest part of getting in shape in having to resist the temptation to eat bad food.  I’m a sucker for sweets like Ice-cream and chocolate.  I also like fried-chicken and fries.  So bad… I know.  It’s time to make changes in my life if I want to get healthy and back in shape.

I’m planning on doing my best to stick to the Focus T25 Schedule.  I see that the schedule requires double workouts on Friday.  I may have to split up that exercise and complete one of them on Saturday or Sunday.  But, for now I just need to focus on getting through Day 2 of T25.

It feels good to finally get through the mental hurdle of just starting my first day of T25.  Now looking forward to seeing what’s in store for me in the second day.

Cardio Power and Resistance Review

The Insanity Workout program focuses on intense cardio, so naturally the third day of the Insanity Workout Schedule is “Cardio Power and Resistance”.  By the time you get to this Insanity Workout your body will be pretty sore from the previous two days of the Insanity Fit Test and Plyometric Cardio Circuit.  But, don’t let that discourage you… if anything this should help you realize that the Insanity Workout is not for the feint of hearts.  But, if you want a ripped body and flat abs it will take some hardwork.

What Does Cardio Power and Resistance Entail?

This workout is about 40 minutes of Max-Interval-Training of good solid Cardio.  “Cardio” basically means an exercise that involves aerobic exercise that works your cardiovascular system.  Cardio Power and Resistance will get your heart racing so it is important to use a heart rate monitor.

Quick Tips for Cardio Power and Resistance

1.  Rest When Needed:  Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance is an intense workout so make sure you go at your own pace.  Don’t let your ego get in the way of your success.  Its perfectly normal to push pause or rest in between sets.  You have to remember that the people in the video have already completed the 60 day workout program so naturally they are use to the intensity.

2.  Check Your Heart Rate:  Heart Rate monitors help you evaluate when you’re body is at its peak performance, but it can also help you identify if you are overexerting yourself.

3.  Warm-up and Stretch:  The Insanity Workout program always starts with a good warm-up and stretch routine.  Warm-up and stretching helps prevent injuries and helps loosen up your muscles to prepare for Cardio Power and Resistance training.

4.  Keep Your Core Tight:  Your “core” is your ab muscles.  It is important to keep your abs tight as it will help support your lower back from injury and strain.  This will also help keep your body balanced and strengthen your mid-section.

5.  Land Softly When Jumping:  Cardio Power and Resistance training involves some jump exercises.  Make sure you land softly and land with your knees bent to absorb the impact.  Some of the jump exercises can be considered high impact.  If you have weak knees make sure you do modified movements to lessen the impact.

6.  Breathe Consistently:  Make sure while exercising to keep a consistent breathing pattern.  This helps get oxygen to your muscles and prevents cramping.

Cardio Power and Resistance Warm-up: 10 minutes

1.  Jog in Place – jogging in place will help warm-up your legs, arms and get your heart pumping.

2.  Power Jacks – this is a modified jumping jack this “half jumping-jack, half squat”

3.  Log Jumps – this warm-up exercise is exactly as it sounds.  Imagine yourself jumping over a log from side to side.

4.  123 Heisman – if anyone has ever watched NFL Football then you would know where the terminology Heisman comes from.  This exercise involves balancing on one leg while the other leg raises the knee.

5.  Butt Kicks – this is another jogging in place exercise but focusing on extending your feet to kick your butt.

6.  High Knees – jog in place but focus on lifting your knees as high as you can to the front of your body.

7.  Vertical Jumps – this exercise will help warm up your legs to prepare for the impact of the jumping exercises.

Equipment for Cardio Power and Resistance

1.  Towel: to wipe off sweat and keep the floor dry

2.  Water Bottle: to keep proper hydration

3.  Cross-Training Shoes: to provide proper support

4.  Workout Clothes: preferable shorts and T-shirts that are drt-fit

5.  Heart Rate Monitor: to get your body to the right heart rate to get optimal results.

6.  DVD and TV: or Laptop computer to play the Insanity Fit Test Video

Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance Review

The Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance workout is what Insanity is all about.  Everything you see in the infomercials is true.  High intense cardio with minimal rest.  The good news is the workout is about 40 minutes long, which consists of about 10 minute warm-up and also 10 minute stretching.  So basically the workout is only about 17 minutes long and 3 minute cool down routine.

The hardest exercise in this routine is the “Power Jumps” if you have weak knees make sure you do a modified movement like calf raise into a squat. This will help minimize injuries until your legs strengthen.  There is some resistance training that trains your triceps and shoulders.  The shoulder exercises are angled “V-pushups” that will help you build your shoulder muscles.  The Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance workout is repeated several times during the first month.  But, after you complete you will definitely feel a sense of accomplishment because it is unlike any cardio workout you have done before.
